  Message for the Week

This weeks Collect

2nd Sunday of Easter

Risen Christ, whose absence leaves us in despair

but whose presence is overwhelming:

breathe on us with your abundant life,

that where we cannot see

we may have courage to believe

that we may be raised with you.

Hear this prayer for your love’s sake. Amen.
